"we now say 'black' as opposed to 'coloured'"


In response to “What’s the most awkward racial interaction you ever had?”

I sit next to a woman at work who is yet to receive the memo that we now say ‘black’ as opposed to ‘coloured’. So every Monday when we rehash weekend TV, I hear all about the coloured guy on Britain’s Got Talent or the coloured guy on X Factor. Not awkward at all.
